Someone use an UPS with the 5100? If yes which one?

I guess is much better if i want to keep the receiver always on ? no?

your opinion?

I have my 5100 plugged into an APC Back UPS ES 500. Both my computers have their own UPS as well. Since power failures are really bad for hard drives, I feel a UPS is essential (which is why I had a query a couple weeks ago about the topic, since it seems that BEV is telling people the 5100 should be plugged into the wall socket directly).

How many times of backup do you have with this UPS (APC 500VA) ??

I'm not sure how long it will run the PVR -- I haven't tested it. The box claims it will run a desktop with a 17" monitor for 12 minutes, or a tower for 9 minutes. I figure it should last at least 15 minutes with just the PVR plugged into it.
